This chapter defines what is meant by therapist competence, particularly regarding the three levels therapists need to address (i.e. the group, interpersonal and intrapersonal levels). The chapter also covers the typical clinician competencies such as empathy and warmth but also the skills necessary to conduct a group, such as time management, setting the agenda, using CBT techniques appropriately, flexibility, creativity, collaboration, and skillfully managing interactions in the group. This chapter will help clinicians better prepare themselves for running the group. We also describe existing measures for assessing therapist competence in CBT for psychosis, as well as in group CBT for psychosis.
